Management Lesson: How to turn problems into cash?

This is a short story about how PRO-ACTIVE PEOPLE turned 2 problems into cash.
The first problem was about pest infected villages in Thailand.
The second problem belonged to a breastfeeding woman who doesn't want her breast milk to go to waste.


PROBLEM NO.1 PEST INFECTED VILLAGES

Once struggling to make ends meet in pest-infested villages, Thai rice farmers are now making money out of the very scourge that has gnawed at their finances -- rats. Thailand is the world's biggest rice exporter and roasted bandicoot rat has become a popular delicacy at roadside stalls despite costing twice as much as pork or chicken.

About 100 people in Plai Nam village, in Suphan Buri province 120 km (80 miles) west of Bangkok and at the heart of the rice-growing region, have taken up rat catching full time as it pays more than working on someone else's farm.

The farmer makes about 400 baht ($12) a day from catching 10 kg (22 lbs) of rats.
One kg (2.2 lb) of roasted rat meat sold along the Bangkok-Suphan Buri highway costs 150 baht, compared to 70 baht for roasted chicken.
Rat meat is firmer and tastes better than chicken or pork because they eat rice and snails.


PROBLEM NO.2 OVERFLOWING WITH BREAST MILK

Iowa -- A woman who doesn't want her breast milk to go to waste has taken out a newspaper ad in hopes of selling it. Martha Heller, 22, of Tiffin, took out the ad in The Gazette, offering 100 ounces of her breast milk for $200 or the best offer.
Heller said her freezer is overflowing with breast milk that she has pumped since August. Her 4-month-old daughter won't drink from a bottle and the supply is piling up. Heller now donates to the University of Iowa's Mother's Milk Bank, but the 100 ounces of milk she wants to sell was pumped before going through the screening process for the bank and cannot be donated. Her story has drawn nationwide attention.
